Arrested for a DUI on New Year's Eve?

The holiday season is known for being a trap for DUI-related arrests and the like. In an effort to help crack down on DUIs and other alcohol-related crimes, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) launched their Holiday Season Impaired Driving Prevention campaign – using the three prongs of high visibility, enhanced prosecution and the support of screening and intervention to help cut down on the devastation that can occur from a drunk driving accident. The two main focuses of the campaign used the principles of "Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over" as well as "Buzzed Driving is Drunk Driving."

Studies have shown that one of the deadliest day of the year in regards to speed-related accidents is on New Year's Day; however, a secondary fact that is often overlooked is the fact that these accidents are often fueled by the consumption of alcohol. In fact, the NHTSA has reported that over half of accident deaths that occur on New Year's Day are related to alcohol – a fact that is often linked to the partying that goes late into the night as patrons across the country ring in the new year.

If you have recently been arrested for drunk driving on New Year's Eve then it is in your best interests to get the involvement of a qualified lawyer to help combat the charges. Although the situation may seem helpless, there are defenses that can be mounted to help protect your freedom; for example, unlawful police stops can cause evidence to be thrown out and "failed" breath tests can be challenged. At Thomas & Paulk, we know these defenses and know the best ways that they can be applied. Contact our firm to learn more about the ways in which we can help you to defend your legal rights against the ramifications of a successful conviction. Call today.
